The water was pristine and snorkelling was a lot of fun around this area. There is also a small restaurant at Puka Beach where my family and... More

We took a sail boat for a quick trip there, from the White Beach. While the Puka Beach itself is quite ordinary, the sailing there was outstanding. The feeling of gliding over the water unassisted by any motor was exhilarating. Would love to do that again !

Beautiful beach. Walk down the length of the beach to the big rocks and wade/swim to the alcove on the other side. Great photo opps! Just beautiful! Lots of souvenir booths set up here. Cheap.

Quieter than white beach, provided you move past the guys selling drinks and necklaces before settling down. Great area for swimming and relaxing.

I was there during May labor day while all the white beach was overcrowded. Puka beach was almost empty, wind was blowing - so it was not very hot to lie on the sun. Lot's of beautiful pictures without people)

you need to ride a trike/cab if you want to go this place.. the beach is very peaceful and the water is clean however the sand is not that pure compare to the sand in station 1-4... you have to bring food and drinks to avoid the over priced snacks from different vendors in that place.. some say it is...

Let's face it, white beach is hectic! If you want something relatively quieter then this is the place to go. There are also small souvenir stands here and some food stalls.

Quieter than White or Bulabog Beaches, however the shells and coral make it much less comfortable under foot. The stalls will charge you twice as much for a fruit shake than other locations, and you will need a to pay for a trike to get there.
